Halestorm (opens in new tab) are planning to return to the studio in the spring of 2020 to begin putting the pieces in place for the follow-up to 2018’s Vicious.

The band are currently on the road across the US with Alice Cooper (opens in new tab), but vocalist and guitarist Lzzy Hale recently dropped into Rock 100.5 The Katt (opens in new tab) where she spoke about their future plans once they finish touring later this year.

She said: “We pretty much decided that in late spring we’re going to settle down and just focus on doing another record. 

“It's crazy – after we finished Vicious (opens in new tab), we had so much material that wasn't even recorded. We had a lot of material that was recorded that wasn't even included on the record, and then since then, we have about two albums' worth of material. 

“It’s almost like Vicious was a launchpad for all this new stuff to come. So I can't wait to actually get it down and show it to everybody.”

Halestorm’s run of shows with Cooper will conclude later this month, with the band then hitting the road with Godsmack throughout September and October (opens in new tab).

They’ll then cross the Atlantic with In This Moment (opens in new tab) and New Years Day (opens in new tab) for dates in the UK and Europe before setting off for Japan and Australia later in the year.
